    EB SW X-mas Raffle 2011

    Just received my package today! To all of you who made this raffle possible:Thank you so much!!! Also, my thanks to Legobrandon for trading with me for this awesome prize pack (prize B)! Lastly, I think that I read (earlier in the thread) that some people had gotten a Vos head instead of a Koth head (for Eeth Koth), and that has happened to me as well now... Is there anyone who received Vos with Koth's head?

    LEGO Star Wars 2012 Pictures and Rumors

    Here's the link to the HothBricks article: Link! Also, the picture: Link I think Yoda looks kinda scary, but it does say that this is preliminary... Hopefully it will change before it is finalized for the 2013 run...

    On the issue of the R2 socket thing on the Jedi interceptor: I like that they tried to give it some symmetry by putting a bulge on the right side as well, but the addition of the flick-fire missiles looks a bit odd. I think that it would benefit from just having the bulge (to keep it symmetrical) without the missiles. The missiles do, however, provide an additional play feature for the kiddies. EDIT: (Having been beat to Obi-Wan's new hair realization) I really do love the new hair. I think it's much better than the Clone Wars version and complements the new face well. I wonder how it works with the CW version of Obi-Wan. Maybe they'll use this on the CW season 3 updated version of Obi if/when they release him.

    EB SW X-mas Raffle 2011

    Thanks so much for hosting the raffle! I quickly put a little something together. It's not much, but I kinda like it. It's not strictly Xmas related (as I don't celebrate Xmas), but the original inspiration came from last year's Doctor Who Christmas Special (which is where the quote at the bottom come from).

    The Lego POTC product page has been updated with the new Black Pearl minifigures . Link! Also (to comment on some of the previous discussion), if the Lego POTC line continues its success, I see no reason for Lego to end it. Additionally, with the 5th movie's script in the works (though not fully confirmed) and production planned for summer 2012 (or so I've heard...), Lego will have a whole new movie to work off of. Also, if POTC continues its success, they plan to theoretically make a 6th movie as well. So, fortunately for some, but unfortunately for others, I do think that the POTC Lego line will continue so long as it remains moderately successful.

    LEGO Star Wars 2012 Pictures and Rumors

    YAY! Thanks so much! I like how the Zombie and the Warrior not only have different colors/printing, but also different wing printing! Barris' torso also got an update... She doesn't look too bad in her updated form (face print), the eyes are still a bit creepy though... The Cannon's pretty good, but in all honesty, this set's about the figures which IMO are GREAT!

    Good to know! Looking forward to it! Thanks so much! Oh, and going off what someone said earlier: It does look like there's a Yavin theme is going on with the minifigures: Ceremony Luke and Han, and now Leia!

    LEGO Star Wars 2012 Pictures and Rumors

    I'm not sure I want to pick this one up (as I have the older one...). I do like the new Leia, and the yellow droid is a plus... It'll all depend on the price I guess, which , being an exclusive, will probably be outrageously high... Also, does anyone find it odd that we've been getting High-res pics of even the exclusives (Y-wing and Jedi Interceptor), but haven't seen any for the Geonosian Cannon?

    LEGO Star Wars 2012 Pictures and Rumors

    Wow! These pics are fantastic! I am very impressed with how the Clone/Droid battle pack came out. Colored rangefinder, cloth gear, and loads of printing! Hopefully the colored rangefinder will lead to colored vizors ect. for those like Cody who need them! I'm disappointed, however, by the fact that a clear support is needed for the cannon thing to stand... The printing on the Sand troopers is impressive. I'm of too minds on the dirt however. It's a bit too much for my tastes. C-3po's new printing is growing on me, in high res, it looks pretty good! The escape pod is...nothing special, but not horrible/bad either... The Tie fighter looks great. Not much to comment on though as we've had good pics of this set for a while now... The X-wing looks pretty good: detailed engines, more refined than the previous version, still not perfect though. Not sure what those white things are right below the cockpit on the sides are. They were added after the preliminary pictures, so this is a minor change from what we'd seen previously... Wow! First clear pics of the Jedi Interceptor! I'm hoping that they fix the problem that Obi's (most recent one) had: where the cockpit would flip open when turned upside-down. I'm still curious to see how they've incorporated R2 and how much he interferes with the sleekness of the ship. Looks like Ani and Obi get they're CW hairpieces, but brand-new faces and torsos (and printed legs for Ani) and Gunray gets a ROTS revamp with a colored version of his CW headdress.... Looks like we've got a bunch of goodies coming this winter! I'm just curious as to why they had the Jedi Interceptor (an exclusive), but not the Geonosian Cannon which we've seen pics of all along. I really want to see what they've done to Barris (in other words: should I pick up the Swamp Speeder, or wait for her CW rendition if it's not too horrid...), Gree (who looks great!) and the Geonosians (Zombie vs. Normal. There seemed to be a slight difference in pattern in the last pics, and their wings also seemed slightly different too...)

    Not sure if this is the place to discuss it, but Disney has a Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides Sweepstakes that has Lego most of the prizes. There's some pretty cool prizes and it's free to enter. Here's the Link. Also, I found this through This article on FBTB, so credit goes to them not me.... EDIT: Official Topic Here!
  15. Just got The Mill for my birthday. It's a good set, but sadly Norrington's hair is wrong and doesn't fit on his head.... Also Jack had a white streak on his hair... I contacted customer service and they were nice enough to send the parts in the mail (haven't arrived yet though....).
